What is a prose poem? At first glance, a prose poem looks like a paragraph: unremarkable. However, its possibilities unfold once we begin to read. In this workshop, led by Kathleen McGookey, we’ll look in-depth at several contemporary prose poems by writers including Russell Edson, Gary Young, Nin Andrews, Killarney Clary and what, aside from the margins, gives those prose poems structure. We’ll briefly look at which writers (Bertrand, Baudelaire, and Rimbaud) were trailblazers with this form. We’ll write our own prose poems. Those attending will leave with lots of suggestions for future reading. Writers of any level are welcome at this workshop. More info on our Facebook page, HERE.

Registration is $40 and is limited to 12 participants.  Pay online via PayPal, via this LINK or send a check to GLCL, 758 Wealthy St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. If you have further questions, please e-mail Zachary at [email protected].
